1.27 mm pitch SMD board connectors can handle high currents and high data rates

MPE-Garry, a binder Group company and a specialist in device to board, board to board and wire to board connectivity, has made key additions to its already extensive 714/715 series product portfolio. Like all connectors in the two series, these are 1.27mm pitch surface mount devices that make up a robust plug-in system for high reliability signal and power transmission.

The new connectors are available in 2-,3-, 4-, 6-, 8-, 10 and 12-  pin formats and feature gold plated, phosphor bronze, double sided spring contacts. With a high current carrying capability and data rates up to 3Gbit/s, these connectors provide designers with a vibration and shock resistant connector solution for today’s applications across a wide range of industrial sectors. A wide operating temperature range is also ideal for use in equipment designed for industrial use.

Importantly for PCB applications, the connectors are designed to allow some angular flexibility when mating. The allowable inclination for the longitudinal axis is 3.9⁰ while for the transverse axis it is 2.6⁰. Both the board to board and wire to board versions feature latching for increased connector integrity.

The 714 and 715 series connectors are compatible with the latest automatic placement and soldering systems and MPE-Garry can supply these in tape and reel packagin.
